Hello my dear friends. This blog post is not about quilting. Bear with me. It might be long and have tons of photos.
If you are a reader of this blog, or know me, you know my husband and I bought an old house that had been significantly fixed up this year. You may or may not know that we were on board with the purchase before the renovations. You also might know that the house had a pretty radical transformation between when we first saw it and when we moved it. You might have heard me tell you that the resident before us was a sweet old lady who just could not manage the house and that it was a mess when the people who sold it to us bought it (she had cats, too many cats among other issues.
This weekend and last weekend my husband and I did a ton of cleaning and yard work because it needed to be done and because we have family coming into town next weekend. I decided it was time to start sharing some house photos. YOLO. Besides everyone loves a good before and after, right?
So, here we go... The before and afters (really, the middle, we did not see the true before, apparently they got the cat smell out before we ever saw it)...
Some background, the house was built circa 1920, it is three bedrooms and two bathrooms, originally it was probably two bedrooms, one bathroom with an at home office.
Today I am going to show you the front and the three "public" rooms or the three rooms that would have been used for entertaining historically. I will try to do the kitchen and bathrooms later this week when we get them clean.
Before (the camera is not crooked the column on the right is leaning):
That is all we really got clean this weekend friends. I am all for keeping it real, but I am not sure I am ready to be dirty kitchen and bathroom real. I hope you all enjoyed a little peak into the bacon casa. I know I LOVE those shows on HGTV when they do the flips and complete renovations. I am no Fixer Upper stylist, but I have fun and force my husband to tolerate my decorating hijinks.
Now back to the sewing room, which is far too much of a disaster to be photographed today.
